ariel's making ... a strawberry ginger galette
oh strawberries! how i love thee! i usually never get a chance to bake with strawberries (we usually gobble them all up too fast!) but this time i bought 1/2 a flat of them at the farmers' market, so there were actually some still intact when a dinner party came-a-callin'!
for this dessert, you'll need:
a crust ...
1/2 c. each of organic whole wheat flour and organic unbleached white flour
1/2 c. organic corn meal
1/4 c. organic fair-trade sugar
1/2 stick organic butter
1 cup organic ginger tea, chilled
mix all the dry ingredients together, then add the cold butter in small chunks and mix until it's incorporated ... then add your liquid. form it into a ball and then roll it out into a big circle and place on a greased cookie sheet.
on the crust, spread 2 T. of organic jam (i used raspberry) and 1 T. fresh organic grated ginger.
add sliced strawberries (about 1 basket), fold in the edges and top with 1 T. of organic fair-trade sugar.
bake at 350* for about 45 minutes or until golden. serve with cream or ice cream.
elegant ... yet ... sooo easy!
